Are you looking for the short version of wedding planning? While you want your wedding to be unique, and infused with your personality, you don’t want to spend hours and weeks and months emailing strangers back and forth, reading millions of reviews and second-guessing every forward progress step you make.

 

I’m a big fan of making your engagement less stressful, here are three types of vendors who, when booked, will make booking the remaining much much easier.

 

WEDDING PLANNER

You saw this one coming right? Hiring a planner, like Sixpence Events & Planning, means hiring experience. You tell your planner what kind of wedding you want, and they recommend the best people to get you there. They’ve got an extensive list of vendors, who they know and have worked with. An invaluable tool.

 

VENUE

All venues will have a preferred vendor list, a group of reliable vendors who know the venue well, who always show up and provide quality service to their couples. More than that, venues like Glenhaven Events are all-inclusive. Meaning included with the venue is catering, decor, floral, photography, videography, pretty much everything you need to get married.

 

While initially you might be shocked with the sticker price, consider the average cost of a wedding and then exhale. Being able to book an all-inclusive venue is a huge money saver, and an enormous time saver. Instead of emailing eight people about your wedding, you chat with one.

 

WEDDING COLLECTIVE

Bellagala is one such collective that combines eight wedding services into one powerhouse company, allowing couples to bundle their wedding services. Photography, DJ, Floral, Videography and Uplighting, even a wedding planner. They often run specials for their services, what could be easier?

 

Just remember finding wedding vendors doesn’t need to be stressful. Ask married friends and ask already booked vendors for their recommendations. Take a deep breath and go get ‘em tiger.

 

Prosperity, Love & Happiness,
